Can a load balancer be setup to direct traffic to one server unless a failure is detected?
The application I’m working with does a lot of file caching so a traditional load balancing situation could be a bit tricky. Can a load balancer be setup to direct all traffic to one server unless it goes down then traffic directed to a server that is replicated from server 1 using rsync. I am currently achieving this using the DO api and a third server that is doing the checking of availability.
